  • Description

    Touch Radio: 'Recorded in April 2005 on The Galápagos Islands, 1000km off the west coast of Ecuador... During March this year Chris Watson was out in the Galápagos Islands recording for a forthcoming tv film series. In particular Chris made a series of recordings throughout the unique and highly specialised Galápagos habitats; from the mist shrouded Miconia zone at the higher altitudes of Santa Cruz down to the dense cactus and thorn scrub bordering the coast on smaller uninhabited islands. This trip was also the first opportunity for Chris to try out location surround sound recording both on land and then underwater, exploring the sonic potential below the surface of the Pacific Ocean with a four channel hydrophone array.' Programme first published on Touch Radio website, 8th May 2005.
